20C360 Expression of Interest for the Provision of Across Government Facilities Management Services

The Across Government Facilities Management Arrangements (AGFMA) is the mechanism by which the South Australian Government (the Government) ensures over 5,000 government-owned facilities around the state are properly maintained so that they remain safe and fit for purpose for the delivery of the essential community services they support. This includes schools, hospitals, prisons, police stations and most other government buildings.

Services within the AGFMA are currently delivered under the management of Facilities Management Service Providers (FMSPs), including the Department for Infrastructure and Transport (the Department) and a contracted private sector provider. The Department is the lead agency responsible for management of the AGFMA, which coordinates the use of these arrangements with over 30 other Government agencies covered by it. Each year, there are over 200,000 maintenance work orders completed.

Under the future model, the administration and works coordination role will be entirely met by specialised external Facilities Management Service Providers, who bring the benefits of modern, best-practice systems and processes.

Importantly, in the future model, the fulfilment of maintenance work orders will continue to be performed by South Australian private sector contractors, including the same contractors that deliver trade services across the State today.

The Department are commencing the formal market process to appoint appropriate FMSPs to provide facilities management services for South Australian Government owned facilities across South Australia with the commencement of this Expression of Interest (EOI). The purpose of this EOI Stage is to shortlist interested parties on their capability and capacity for participation in an Invitation to Supply (ITS).
